Tony Vaccaro's iconic Marimekko photography from 1964

On show at Marimekko's NYC flagship store August 13th - September 9th 2018

Photographer Tony Vaccaro (born in 1922) has captured a broad range of our world during his almost 80-year career. He is best known for his photos taken in Europe in the 1940s. Later, he became a renowned fashion and lifestyle photographer. 

Tony Vaccaro has photographed kings and queens, presidents and popes, writers and actors, artists and scientists. In 1964, LIFE magazine sent him to Finland - to Marimekko.

This photoshoot gave us one of the most iconic sets of Marimekko photography, which today acts as an enchanting visit to the joyous and colourful 1960s, the origin of Marimekko. One of the models, Anja, was to become Tony Vaccaro's wife. What a story!

Please join at our flagship store to view in person.
